A Taste of Your Own Medicine

Where does the time go? We say that a lot, but seriously, where does the time really go?

It’s crazy to think about how much can change in just a year. Your job can change, your relationship status, your goals, and so much more. And if you’re not careful, all these new changes can occur almost without you even realizing it. That’s almost what happened to me.

I finally took a minute to think about where I was last year at this time. I was in a completely different place. I was different mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. In some ways I was better, and in some ways I was just different.

I have to admit, I enjoy looking at the “memories” app on Facebook. It reminds of the place I was in at one point in my life. On those tough days I look back at that memory tab and I’m reminded of so many things. I’m reminded of quotes that I posted. Those posts hold me accountable for my today.

Truth be told, I think that tab has changed my attitude recently. When I’m reminded of how I tried to encourage people a year ago, I can’t help but take a dose of my own medicine. And you know what, I need it. Sometimes I need two tablespoons instead of one. And as nasty as that medicine can be, it sure does work.

We don’t realize it, but sometimes the only elixir we really need, is a taste of our medicine.
